Rock expo

Okay, so The Artourage is putting on a big rock festival Saturday at Blackbeards. Yes, Blackbeards! (How has someone not thought of this before?!). All kinds of festival-y stuff going on. Most notably to us are all the bands. Like, locals Bully The Kid, The Velusha, Homebrew, Dislodic, Rise Before The Fall and more. Big out of town acts too, such as Michale Graves (ex Misfits) and Pacific Dub.

Point is, it's going to be a crazy-ass time out there. The Artourage has been very generous with the ticket give-aways for Rock Expo. So generous they want a couple Fresnan Readers to go. So, to maybe win a pair of tickets, just email us something, you know whatever, to and you'll be entered. We'll pick the winner using our Randomizer and email him or her Thursday night.

Good luck!
